The thing with Flying Scotsman is that unlike any other engine she is an Icon and known as 4472 and in Apple Green . Any other livery or number and to the public she means a lot less although yes it would be nice to see her in Blue or Brunswick Green This haul as much as possible argument I also find frustrating . Her condition was to an extent because of that . she is a delicate old lady now and has slogged her way around the world , isn't it time for a more gentle dotage ? I quite like the Vintage Trains approach . Carriage loads well within the limits for the engine . I suspect that she will command a premium fare but should she be pushed for that extra pound ?
